Folktronica is a genre derivative of and combining both folk music and electronica.

The Name

The label "folktronica" seems to have originated in the British press, although (as with the almost non-term post-rock) it has come to encompass performers and bands that include elements of ambient electronica, folk, jazz, classical, and even hip-hop. In 2001, postmodern pop artist Momus released an album titled Folktronic deliberately exploring (and satirizing) the fusion. A similar genre is "Laptop folk", which refers to a slightly more minimalistic electronic folk.
